Mumbai: Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has roped in Nargis Fakhri for 'Madras Cafe' and says that he is re-launching her in filmdom with his movie on terrorism.
She made her Bollywood debut with hit musical romance 'Rockstar!' as a college going student. While her co-star Ranbir Kapoor was praised for his performance in the film, the actress managed to impress with her looks.
Now Sircar is presenting her as a journalist in 'Madras Cafe', a political-thriller, which deals with terrorism and civil war and was reportedly shot in Sri Lanka and India.
"This is Nargis's debut film. I introduced Nargis in a commercial and then she did 'Rockstar'," Shoojit told reporters in a group interview.
Showing confidence in the actress's acting skills, he further said: "I can assure you, she will surprise everybody with the film. This is the reason I am telling you Nargis is debuting with 'Madras Cafe'."
With three films in his kitty and a National Award, Sircar, the man behind 'Yahaan', 'Vicky Donor' and 'Shoebite', says that he is "particular about my actors".
"I don't let them go till I get the best out of them. Nargis will be re-launched with the film," he reiterated.
'Madras Cafe' features John Abraham in the lead and the actor is also co-producing the film.
